Hi There

Welcome to Core Trac.

Nice catch on this issue. But with your patch, it looks like sanitize_title is not enough to validate the username. Also, we should keep the username length within some range.

For now, there is a validation of username length of more than 60. Let's see other developer's suggestions to improve this.
